What possesses the nice, quiet guy next door to butcher his neighbors, wife, and/or significant other? Why do jealous people fantasize about vengeful violence and occasionally act on it? Michael Prichard conveys the answers in this slow-paced listen. This detailed account of scientific analysis and field studies of actual killers and killings, along with interviews of those who have considered it, make this audiobook initially engaging, but finally tedious. Prichard's monotone and the steady march of dry information, though punctuated with juicy tales of hate and vengeance, culminate in ear fatigue, which could have been relieved by more vocal variety.
